痛不欲生的分娩过程

在我爱人怀孕前,我们就打算进行无痛分娩。但就在预产期前一周,我们才知道甚至没有无痛分娩这个选项。

 

老外在中国:痛不欲生的分娩过程

 

 

There are questions about responsibility. The woman's family and the hospital offer differing accounts as to who refused her request for the procedure.
孕妇自杀究竟是谁的责任存在质疑。女方家属和医院对谁拒绝了孕妇的请求各执一词。

(Media reports aren't clear as to whether local or spinal anesthesia was an option — and if not, why not.)
(媒体没有明确报道医院是否提供了局部麻醉了,如果没有,那么为什么呢?)

But the point is that pain-free childbirth is indeed rare in the country.
但关键是,无痛分娩在中国确实尚未成熟。

It accounts for 5 percent of births nationwide and about 30 percent in Beijing.
无痛分娩在中国所占比率为5%,在北京比率为30%。

The figure is 85 percent in the United States.
而这一数据在美国为85%。

Guangzhou Women and Children's Medical Center's anesthesia department director, Song Xingrong, tells China Daily four out of five women who come to the hospital are unaware of it.
广州市妇幼保健所麻醉科主任宋兴荣在接受《中国日报》采访时指出,有80%的孕妇来到医院时根本对无痛分娩没有概念。

We learned it often isn't even an option — about a week before Sagan's due date.
大约在萨根的预产期前一周,我们才知道甚至无法选择无痛分娩。

The love of my life and I stood outside a public hospital, holding each other and sobbing.
我和我的爱人在一家公立医院门口,相拥哭泣。

We'd previously arranged for our son to be born at the same private hospital as our daughter. There are various reasons we'd elected public hospitals.
起初,我们打算在此前女儿出生的那家私立医院生下我们的儿子,但后来因为各种原因我们选择了一家公立医院。

One is they informed us there probably wouldn't be an anesthesiologist available.
原因之一是,我们被告知可能会没有麻醉师进行麻醉。

We knew how excruciating birth could be, having already brought our first child into the world.|
我们知道分娩是多么痛苦,因为我们已经有一个孩子了。

The epidural was planned before the pregnancy.
在我爱人怀孕前,我们就打算进行硬膜外麻醉。

But the private hospital dropped us about two weeks before the birth, citing an unrelated health condition my wife has that would in no way affect pain-free childbirth.
但在预产期前两周,那家私立医院以我妻子的健康状况为由将我们打发了。这个不相干的理由对进行无痛分娩毫无影响。

We couldn't hop on a plane to elsewhere by then.
那时,我们根本不可能跳上飞机,飞到别的地方。

So, public hospitals seemed our only choice.
所以,公立医院成为我们唯一的选择。

We were devastated. Horrified. Desperate.
之后,恐惧和绝望就萦绕在我和妻子周围。

Some people can endure giving birth without an epidural.
有些人可以忍受没有硬膜外麻醉的分娩。

My wife knew the stakes.
但我妻子知道那样做的危险。

Fortunately, we found another private hospital that accepted us, last minute. It was expensive. And worth every penny.
幸运的是,我们在最后一刻找到另一家愿意接收我们的私立医院。虽然价钱昂贵,但十分值得。

We cried again. This time, again, for joy.
我们哭了,这一次是喜悦的眼泪。

About a week later, we were sobbing once more.
一周后,我们又一次哭了。

This time, because of my wife's labor pains.
这次,是因为我妻子的痛苦。

At one point, my wife screamed, “If I had a gun ...”
只听我的妻子叫喊道,“如果给我把枪……”

She meant it.
她是认真的。

I could see it in her face.
我可以从她的表情判断出来。

Fortunately, the anesthesiologist arrived. Quickly.
幸运的是,麻醉师很快赶来了。

My wife was able to bear childbirth.
我的妻子得以顺利生产。

Sagan was born in Beijing on Aug 16, 2015.
萨根于2015年8月16日出生在北京。

We cried a final time. A final time, for joy.
那是我们最后一次流泪,感动的眼泪。
